Mt. Hood Jazz Festival

  • Mt. Hood Community College welcomes the Mt. Hood Jazz Festival back to our campus! This year’s festival will combine the educational festival previously known as the Northwest Jazz Band Festival with professional jazz artist performances that engage the community and inspire the next generation of jazz musicians!

    The festival features over 70 high school and middle school big bands and combos. All ensembles receive constructive feedback from adjudicators and may elect to perform for comments only or ratings.
